What do you imagine when you think of Dubai? Beach parties? Glamorous venues? Good music? I was invited along to the seasonal launch of the White Party at The Beach Lounge in Jumeirah Beach Hotel and I found all of those things, and more, rolled into one place.
Practically as soon as we'd hitched a ride on a buggy, I knew there was special about The Beach Lounge as the Burj Al Arab, in all it's glory, came in to view. And that view only gets better once you arrive at the lounge itself. You are literally sat in the perfect place to see one of the most iconic buildings in the world. It's jaw dropping!
The lounge is completely outside, on the beach, which is perfect now that the weather is cooling down. Potentially not so great when summer is in full swing, though. There's a huge variety of different seating arrangements, from squishy bean bags, comfy sofas covered in cushions, and cabanas big enough to fit four. You're spoilt for choice in terms of comfort, and that really is the name of the game here. It's the perfect place to unwind after a long day, or chill out with friends at the weekend.
Whilst being completely in awe of the surroundings, listening to chilled lounge music that fits the venue to a T, and given a huge choice of drinks (the freshest juices I've ever tried!) and tapas, I almost forgot that I was in the middle of the hustle and bustle that is Dubai. You could easily mistake the Beach Lounge as being somewhere in the Mediterranean. It's only the distinct smell of shisha pipes and the amazing veiw of the Burj Al Arab that reminds you that you are, in fact, still in the middle of the desert.
This place is going to become the new cool-kids hangout in the not too distant future, without a doubt.
I'm no cool-kid, but you'll definitely catch me there again soon!
